Peggy Orenstein’s 2006 essay What’s Wrong with Cinderella? sparked a firestorm; now she digs more deeply into our growing girlie-girl culture. Facing down her own confusion as a mother raising a girl, journalist Orenstein, author of the bestseller "Schoolgirls" and "Cinderella Ate My Daughter", examines the seemingly-retro trend toward the ultra-feminine, from Disney princesses to the color pink; the role the ubiquitous marketing machine plays in packaging and promoting it; and what it could mean for our daughters’ identities and futures.
